Churn Dash Block

This looks the best in 3 different fabrics of light, medium, and dark color. This is based on 9 square block of 4 ½ inch unfinished squares. It is a traditional block from the second half of the nineteenth century. It has a half square block in each corner that makes this a good practice block for beginner quilters.  It is also a very attractive block in a sampler quilt that quilters enjoy adding to their quilts. It is easier to 5 inch square block and then cut down to 4 ½ inch half square block.

Cut:
Two of 5 inches square blocks from both dark and light fabrics.
One of 2 ½ inches by 18 inches strip from both dark and medium fabrics.  Or four each of light and medium fabrics 2 ½ inches by 4 ½ inches.
One of 4 ½ inches square block from light fabric
